Complaint: Sebelius’ illegal
campaign trip for Obama
worse than we thought

Washington Examiner, by Joel Gehrke

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius violated federal law by campaigning for President Obama on the taxpayers’ dime, but now that initial violation has the Democratic National Committee and an HHS aide in the spotlight for related alleged infractions. A nonprofit government watchdog filed a complaint alleging that the DNC violated campaign finance law by misreporting the money it spent to reimburse HHS for Sebelius’ trip in a way that masked the fact that the Hatch Act, a ban on political campaigning by government employees working in their official capacity,

And just what will be done about it? We no longer have the rule of law in this country as it applies to Democrats. If she was a Republican you know this would be a whole different story.

I don´t think we know the half of what is going on in this transparent admin.

Does anyone in the Rep Party think they will be re-elected or they just don´t care anymore, because after all, they are set for life ?

What happens in a schoolroom when one student is allowed to disregard all the rules? The other students eventually join in the misbehavior. Perhaps the dems blatant disregard for our laws, and the media´s apparent approval of those actions, will lead this country to become lawless. If that is the plan, then we see why the huge arming of homeland security.

Remember when Governor of Kansas...she could send out State Income Tax Refund checks. Bankrupting or nearly bankrupting the state.

Her father was Governor of Ohio at one time nearly bankrupting the state.

She didn´t pay her fair share of Federal income taxes and state taxes.

Hatch Act? Ironically the Hatch Act of 1939 was named for a Democrat Senator.

For those who haven´t studied the history of the Hatch Act (I hadn´t either) here is a tidbit about it from Ask.com

Widespread allegations that local Democratic Party politicians used employees of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) during the congressional elections of 1938 provided the immediate impetus for the passage of the Hatch Act....

Despite that investigation´s inconclusive findings, many in both parties determined to take action against the growing power of the WPA and its Chief Administrator, Harry Hopkins, an intimate of the president. The Act was sponsored by Senator Carl Hatch, a Democrat from New Mexico. At the time, Roosevelt was struggling to purge the Democratic party of its more conservative members[bold print is mine] who were increasingly aligned with the administration´s Republican opponents.

The president considered vetoing the legislation or allowing it to become law without his signature, but instead signed it on the last day he could do so. His signing message welcomed the legislation as if he had called for it[bold is mine] and emphasized the protection his administration would provide for political expression on the part of public employees.


Sounds like something Barry would do - take credit for something that isn´t his!

#14 stablemoney (above) brilliantly breezes over a dozen familiar acts of theft and fraud by the ridiculous clowns we call "leaders".....all of them protected by ignoring the Constitution, lawlessness and Diane Sawyer. How can you not be a thief in the Beltway, when all that fake money is oozing bucketsful out of the Fed every day, and you know the entire media, led by Diane Sawyer, will look the other way and protect you and your moeny stealing crimes? It´s open house to theft and waste in DC. That´s the way it is.
And our exemplary Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Darrel Issa, Michelle Bachman, even Ron Paul do not run about all day screaming and shoutingabout this 24/7 grand theft. No, they only talk about one good issue at a time. They, too, keep their mouths SHUT !

Oh, but restrictions like the Hatch Act are meant to keep people in-line who don´t have a conscience, like Republicans and Conservatives. Liberals and Democrats are higher-minded and higher-principled, moral, conscientious people, though -- THEY can do whatever they want in any situation, because whatever they see as best to do MUST be the right thing...

It was a great help to me when I realized that these professional politicians only care about ONE thing: staying elected. Keeping their position of power is their goal. Tactics vary, but the goal is the same. So the demoncrats buy votes with stolen money, and the repukeicans keep their mouths shut when told to by the media.
Inside the beltway, everybody stays happy. Outside it, we toil, and boil.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
